Alcatel-Lucent will integrate the MXtv platform from NextWave Wireless to deliver mobile multimedia services over Wimax.

Under the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will integrate MXtv into 802.16e-based Wimax solutions. The two companies announced plans to perform a series of interoperability tests starting second quarter this year.

According to NextWave, MXtv can offer up to 45 broadcast channels, streaming at 300kbps, in a pure broadcast overlay Wimax network and up to 20 broadcast channels in a hybrid mobile broadcast and broadband offering.

NextWave added MXtv provides fully-integrated broadcast and unicast of voice, data and rich media over each individual stream.
